Partnerships in Play

Exploring awareness in relationships through Psychodrama and Physical Theatre

Welcome to a highly experiential and playful group of personal development in which the Psychodrama Approach and Physical Theatre will dance together to provide a unique experience of emotional awareness and embodied spontaneity.

The focus of the group will be on relationships and partnerships.

Both individuals and couples are welcome, as well as anyone wishing to explore a partnership in their life (friends, work colleagues, family members…).

When two people/individuals engage with each other, they are well more than two! The psychodrama approach sees relationships as a fascinating field of human interactions in which a variety of roles are engaged, each of them manifesting different desires and needs, potentials and dilemmas, complicity and conflicts. 

The language of theatre allows these roles to be explored in a playful and embodied way, facilitating insights and awareness, personal process and further understanding of the nature of the relationship. The play of these roles reveal their fundamental vital drives as well as their unique wisdom, providing precious insights in the process of exploration, amplification and integration of the amazing theatre of our Psyche.

The workshop is open to anyone wishing to engage in a quest of personal awareness and emotional awakening through role playing and theatrical games, within the context of a psychodrama group.

Welcome to the theatre of relationships!
